Also, I think without reporting to police, you won't get the new plate anyway.

You are not kidding. I came out of a local poolhall to find somebody with a green Mustang stealing licence plates off a green Mustang. What other reason would they have for doing this, knowing that when the plate was reported stolen, they would get pulled over immediately. I think they were going to commit a crime that night.

And if they get into an accident with your plates, and they don't have insurance, you will also be screwed. Call the police asap.

With a police report it'll cost ~$20 to have your plate and tags replaced. My concern, along with crimes, would be the use of the 407.

stolen license plates are for either:

1: commiting another crime using another car (probably stolen too)

2: peeling off your insurance sticker to "appear" that their car has up to date insurance to others who may check.

Was this about the thief stealing the garage door security pass?

Your right about the first one, but the second the sticker on your plate has nothing to do with insurance. Thats your registration sticker. It must be renewed every year (theres an option to buy a 2 year sticker but its not cheaper)

theres a little number on the sticker that must correspond to the one on your green Ontario registration slip.

I dont think police have the ability to check how valid an insurance policy is on the side of the road (perhaps they could call the insurance company?) but usually all they do is check the expirty date on your pink slip.


I hear people who use to boost cars they would swap plates numerous times.

So if they were trying to steal lets say a Silver Civic, they would find their target, swap their plates with another civics plates, then swap that civics plates with ANOTHER civics plates. By the time they figure out who has whos plates and whos car is really stolen the cars been stripped or crashed into a pole
Did I post something that interests you? Feel free to PM further questions.

in BC the insurance works a bit different. The sticker is proof of insurance besides the actual receipt from the insurance co. the only way to check if the sticker matches the car is to pull the registration and/or insurance papers and examine them. If there is a sticker on the plate, then there is no reason to pull the driver over. Some cheap scammers do this who don't want to pay insurance, thinking they can get away without any accidents. the sticker shows that the car is insured.

Your second point about the same colour and make is very true.

If they are customized, do they still replace them for $20?
